Look! The band with the eye-catching name has produced an album with an equally eye-catching title!

Ever since this band has started growing, I've always been willing to give them a try, and did so for the first time last year. On first listen, I found pretty much all of their songs okay, but some of them, mainly "Gamma Knife", ended up growing on me quite a bit.

It appears to be much of the same here for me unfortunately, but there are a few solid tracks on here.

We get a lot of hypnotic and mesmerizing heavy rock tracks here, and it sounds like there are some Middle Eastern influences here, with a fairly constant use of clarinet (?) throughout many of the songs.

Much of the album isn't really appealing for me though, but it is certainly a very solid effort, and given their very prolific output, you never know, they might win me over with the new album they release next week, and if that still doesn't win me over, maybe the album they release the week after that ;P

FAV TRACKS: RATTLESNAKE, OPEN WATER, ANOXIA

LEAST FAV TRACK: FLYING MICROTONAL BANANA

6/10
